Good Idea No. 10
For a long time I was dealing with loading the wood stove wearing a regular pair of work gloves, which was better than nothing. But I can't tell you how many times I left grill-patterned singe marks on my forearms. It was obvious that I needed a pair of hearth gloves, but I've seen them go for as much as forty bucks!
Then one day I'm at the Home Depot in their tool department. Welding gloves, $14.97 a pair; long gloves that are well insulated. What do I care they say 'Lincoln Electric' on them?
They work great.
